Re: Rain gage is flooded
I was about to wish for a bit of rain here... but Nate has a convincing point.. maybe I'd better be happy with
a bit of dry, just now.
Will keep praying that all is well, and no one gets hurt. Although the current forecasts indicate maybe a
eye to the sky would be warranted today. Stay safe.
We've had a couple of scattered T-showers here.. less than .2 inch from both.
Have a great day,

From one extreme to the other, eh?
We went under tornado warning last night around 9:40 and the John Deere
dealership three miles west of town was hit but a truss manufacturer
just east of there was "leveled" according to my brother who was out
with the township fire deptartment assessing damage. I understand that
several homes about a mile and a half northwest of town were struck.
That's a little too close, thank you very much!
My gauge shows 1.6" this morning and I suspect it was heavier to the
west of the tornado track.
I'll be happy with a few quiet months now!
